Chennai: DMK legislators were evicted from the Tamil Nadu Assembly in Chennai today for raising a din after the Privileges Committee condemned DMK president M Karunanidhi.
Marshals were called to escort the DMK members out after they tore up copies of the committee's report and shouted slogans while massing near Speaker P Dhanapal.
The Privileges Committee had recommended that Mr Karunanidhi should be condemned for attributing comments to a minister who denied making them.
After the resolution accepting the committee's recommendation was passed, Speaker Dhanapal said Mr Karunanidhi should not do such things again. This triggered the DMK fury.
